Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tooting

My mortgage broker requires my Tooting law firm’s panel member for the HSBC conveyancing panel. How do I find this out. I have e-mailed my local Tooting branch but they don't know it.

You are best placed to get this information from your Tooting lawyer . Most Tooting law practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.

The owners have rather pushy sellers who has suggested a lock out agreement with a payment 10k. Are such contracts generally advanced for Tooting conveyancing transactions?

This form of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Tooting, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no assurance that just because the owner has entered into a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they are offered sufficient incentive to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not compare to the financial benefit that your vendor may secure by breaking the contract, however morally reprehensible that may be.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Tooting. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Tooting

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Tooting I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Tooting for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Am I right to be concerned that brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Tooting conveyancing company?

As is the case with lots of professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may put forward solicitors to retain. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to select your preferred lawyer. Don't forget that most lenders specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your house move.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my father I am selling a house in Swansea but live in Tooting. My conveyancer (who is 260 kilometers awayrequires that I execute a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Tooting to attest and place their company stamp on the document?

strictly speaking you should not need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in Tooting
